It’s a beautiful spring day and you and your Baltimore betches are looking for somewhere to go to lunch. You want somewhere you can sit outside, that isn’t far from campus, and won’t break the budget. Insert Clark Burger.

I’m not afraid to qualify Clark Burger as the best burger I’ve ever had. You can dress it up any way you want. The menu includes some signature versions, but I say ball out and build your own. #SpoonTip: Garlic truffle mayo is never a bad idea.

But what really makes Clark Burger the best? Let me count the ways.

As I so eloquently stated before, the burgers speak for themselves and any signature one you get or any combo you concoct won’t disappoint you. If you can’t make it to Clark Burger today, check out these non beef burgers you can whip up in your apartment.

#SpoonTip: Try the Full Mountie– they put poutine ON the burger itself. See below for a fuller understanding of what that exactly means.

What is poutine, you ask? It’s a Quebec speciality (the owner of Clark is Canadian) with fries doused in gravy and cheese curds. Sounds funky, I know. I was hesitant to try it as well. But it kinda tastes like Thanksgiving and kinda tastes simply like nothing else you’ve had before.

#SpoonTip: They also have several amped up poutines on their menu. I recommend the Frère Jacques.

On a nice day, Clark Burger opens their French bistro style windows so customers can sit on the bar style seating and look out onto Belvedere Square.

The restaurant itself is small, so sometimes you may have to wait a few minutes during weekend restaurant rush hour to snag a table. However, when the windows are open, the small size of the place allows everyone to feel like they’re eating outside.

Boozy Shakes

Another thing that makes Clark Burger so cool is their boozy shakes. Their hand spun milkshakes stand great on their own, but the adult version is decadent to say the least. They’re always offering new flavors so stop in, close your eyes, pick one, and enjoy it.

#SpoonTip: Staying in for dessert? Pimp your homemade milkshake and add some of your own alcohol.
